BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:10 P.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIS) forces struck back against the Turkish Army and their rebel allies on Friday, seizing several points from the latter inside Al-Bab City.

According to the Islamic State’s official media wing, their forces recaptured the Shehabi Farms at the northern gates of Al-Bab after a battle with the Turkish Army and their rebel allies on Friday afternoon.

With Shehabi Farms under their control, the Islamic State will now attempt to retake Aqil Hill from the Turkish Armed Forces in the Al-Bab countryside.

If ISIS is successful in their quest to recapture the Aqil Hill, then they will have reversed most of the gains made by the Turkish Armed Forces in Al-Bab.

Turkey is near from the ridicoulous 🙂 I guess they are champion. They have soon to sing a song : ” we are champion” (of stupid things) 🙂

Now that they win with ISIS, they should try one other chance with the kurds :mrgreen:

You used one wrong word: “near” please substitute with “totally”. p.s. If Erdogan starts a war in West Kurdistan he will soon have to call for foreign NATO troops to defend him.

No me gusta ISIS, pero es admirable el patriotismo mostrado por ISIS frente al ejercito invasor y sus mercenarios de Erdogan… Considero que el ejercito Sirio y SDF deben aliarse para expulsar a los mercenarios Turcos del territorio Sirio, a pesar de las diferencias ambos son parte de la nación Siria… Con respecto a ISIS ya le llega su final no hay retorno en eso.

Erdogan’s post selfcoup purges of the Turkish army have degraded the once 3rd strongest NATO ground force to a big paper tiger.
